Nutraceutical offers hope to menopausal women with hair loss

The latest research from wellness company Nutrafol was recently presented at The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

The new study, funded by Nutrafol manufacturer Nutraceutical Wellness, suggests that nutrient-derived bioactive compounds found in Nutrafol’s Women’s Balance may effectively promote hair growth in women whose hormone changes are associated with decreased hair growth.

“Hair thinning is multifactorial, and as such the supplement is formulated with multiple standardized and bio-optimized ingredients that have been specifically selected for their clinical properties and efficacy in addressing these underlying causes, including hormonal shifts, stress, aging, nutrition, environment, oxidative damage and immune responses,”​ explained lead author Dr. Glynis Ablon of the Ablon Skin Institute and Research Center in California.


“Nutrafol Women’s Balance is formulated with ingredients that address key root causes of thinning hair to improve hair growth. For instance, saw palmetto which was increased in this formulation, is clinically shown to be an effective dihydrotestosterone inhibitor, while ashwagandha is potent stress adaptogen that has been shown to balance elevated cortisol levels in stressed adults. Additionally, maca is a sex hormone adaptogen that has been used for thousands of years to help women through the menopausal transition and had shown clinical benefits as such. The influence of these ingredients is in their ability to specifically address underlying triggers of hair thinning during this time. [It’s] formulated with natural ingredients also known to help lower frequency of hot flashes and night sweats, improve sleep quality, mood, and skin health,”​ Ablon said.
